- After the Egypt sources, the anonymous taper contacted me
to talk about transferring and editing some more masters from
his collection. These Greek Theater shows were a tapers choice,
a run he holds near and dear. These tapes were made by a group
of friends. The taper explained how he had spent the majority
of the weekend waiting in line just to get to the sweet spot
inside the venue where he knew the sound would be at its best.
He didn't want to see these tapes (and many others) that represent
wonderful moments in music history, deteriorate without ever being
circulated. For him, these tapes represent really great times,
where friendships were made by individuals from different
backgrounds and talents with a common goal of trying to capture
the sense of being there.
- Patch at the beginning of cassidy and it's all over now baby blue from shnID 23658

Subject: Very nice.
Subject: late bloomer..but..
Subject: A Revelation
Now this show certainly has "it". It's got an energy and a sparkle that I thought was gone by this time. There are certainly moments in shows that had it, and wonderful "energy shows". But, this show has crisp jams, bright energy and most of all Garcia playing like he used to. It's truly a revelation..
The sow starts out with a wonderful Shakedown . There's moments during that jam that are almost reminiscent of a 77 Dancin in the Streets.
Greatest Story with careful snaky leads, a beautiful Friend of the Devil, and they're just getting warmed up.
Where do I go from here. The rest of the first set is played with an impassioned and clearly joyful purposefulness that's wonderful to behold. None of this later 80's frenetic heavy chord and runs up and down that everyone calls "shredding". No, this is Garcia playing meaningful leads, really working out the fingerboard as we know he certainly had known how to do, but somehow lost it around this time.
Look I know some out there will yell "What about Saratoga 83, Augusta 84 blah, blah". I was at those shows. Yea, they were great times and good energy. But something was always missing. Could it be the leads with a purpose. I know I'm gushing. But hey I'm excited. And let's be honest the thrill of discovering exciting new Dead (at least to my ears) is what brings us all back here..
Subject: Number 2 version.
This one is very clean, I knew these guys and thought they used DBX instead of Dolby but maybe that was later. But ie is also a little lean in the low end.
This one is just as clean but more full and the best version posted so far, as of 10/12/09.
